There you will learn how and why the Vienna Riding School came into being and what the unique Lipizzaners are all about. The 17th century arena by Josef Emanuel Fischer von Erlach is also a jewel of baroque architecture and well worth a visit.
The Lipizzan breed & and its long Tradition in Vienna
Lipizzaner were first bred in the 17th century from Spanish, Neapolitan and Arabian horses. Nowadays the Lipizzan Horse Breeding Traditions belong to the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO.
The young stallions are gray and develop the characteristic white coat only in adulthood. At the age of three and a half, the animals come to Vienna and undergo six years of training. Only then are the horses ready for the Spanish Riding School. Lipizzaners are known for their eagerness to learn and their quick perception and are therefore predestined for the demanding performances at the Spanish Riding School.
